Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I received the same type of ehdd at my repair bay three days back. I tried it with linux 98 and even dos but to no avail then I concluded that the problem is hardware failure. I replaced the usb cable still it didn't worked. At last I de-soldered the connector on ehdd and replaced with a new one and it worked perfectly. Hence, I recommend that you try it with linux mount command and if it's not detected over there then you are required to change the connector.

If the data is very crucial and you cannot afford to loose it you can go to places live "geek squad"or "comp usa" or "drive savers" coz you would not want to take any adventure witht he data your self , if it not as important than try to connect the hdd first with the windows os computer then mac and see what you can recover infact you can also use any data recovery software too,
secondly the hdd are usually very sensitive as they have got disks running inside the box so if it fell down and you have took out the data ,then format it and see if the problem coms again if it does then buy a new hdd .
